Small heat – bursts of addiction –
translate touch to passion,
while breath delays, patience is carved into the soul.
a smile – recognition – slinks its way across both faces,
a lazy, lemon-flavored secret to be tucked away
for a night dream.
rain trickles down the classroom window as
his fingers curve, take root, draw circles against her palm.
her heart speeds, matching the rate of the hail outside.
if he's not meticulous with the way he holds her,
she'll shatter.

I think you have a way with words.  You sound like you have a lot of talent, I only wish you had written more about it :/

You have talent; Don't forget it!

 thank you thank you! :) glad you all liked it. I kept it short for certain reasons - mainly personal. It's hard to write about this guy - he was my first true love, always will be. you know how it goes :P but I'm so glad you like it. I'll revise and add some more for you all!
